Canvas Kicks: Part Two, Seavees

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

After kicking off our summertime fly canvas kicks countdown with Converse, we take things out west for a bit of that casual flavor. A California classic, SeaVees predates even Vans (which is crazy to think about). The brand caters to the laid back surfer lifestyle Southern Cali is known for by calling itself “Authentic California”.

During its initial run in the 60′s, the brand only lasted for 9 years. After taking a seriously long hiatus (the entire staff lost track of time surfing maybe?) it would be 40+ years later until the near forgotten SeaVees were reintroduced.

What stands out most about SeaVees, is how laid back the whole collection feels. Each pair caters perfectly to that whole, Life’s a long weekend, Monday brunch, sockless in the office, straight kickin’ it casual lifestyle. Silhouettes like the 2/64 Baja Slip On and the 8/63 Hermosa are each inspired by iconic Surfer-esque 60’s living references, like specific issues of “Surfer Magazine” or the dates of skateboard contests.

SeaVees are honestly a must have this summer. Especially if you’re wishing for that Cali living from the other side of the country, or all the way around the world.


Canvas Kicks: Part One, Converse

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

After what felt like the longest winter ever, spring is finally here. Now while it still might be a little chilly out that doesn’t mean you should wait till it’s full on summer to start steppin’ your footwear game up. Picking out the perfect warm weather kicks can be a terrifying, unforgivable process. The last thing you want to do is end up with a lame pair that won’t do you, your wardrobe, or feet any justice. Don’t stress out too much though; we’ve got you covered.

In honor of warmer and much more enjoyable days ahead, we here at DNA Footwear have put together a small list of a few brands and their canvas constructed offerings.

To kick things off right, (no pun intended) we have to stick to the classics. Few pairs say summertime fly the way Converse All-Stars and a fresh pair of Purcell’s do. Once considered top of the line “performance” shoes, today both the All-Star and Purcell have stepped off their respective courts and become staple casual footwear pieces. Now, while both builds are without a doubt older than everyone wearing them, that doesn’t mean they’re incapable of turning a few heads this summer. Continuing to improve on aesthetics, while remaining true to the brands classic roots, Converse has made sure the shoes stay relevant making use of not only an impressive and wide selection of colors, but by implementing prints like camo, paisley, pin-stripes and many more.

Brand Crush: Wolverine 1K by Samantha Pleet spring styles

Monday, April 14th, 2014

Back in March one of our favorite fashion bloggers Toshiko Shek, the amazing creative force behind It’s Not Her, It’s Me, published a fabulous review of this spring’s must have stylish Swedish Hasbeens. We’re excited to announce that Toshiko is at it again by perfectly styling the Wolverine 1K Mile by Samantha Pleet spring collection in a new blog post this April.

This spring, Brooklyn based designer Samantha Pleet has partnered with Wolverine 1000 Mile for the fifth season in a row, giving us shoe fanatics yet again another breathless collection. In this newest collaboration spring staples like the Festival Closed Toe Slingback Sandal (featured on Toshiko above), the Picnic Low Heel Closed Toe Sandal and the Ceremony High Heeled Booties are all perfectly designed for these warm spring temperatures.

Thanks to Toshiko’s fabulous eye for styling, it’s easy to imagine adding any (or all) of Samantha Pleet’s newest designs to our closets.

Brand of the Day: Kickers 30% Off

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

kickers

Black Friday: CHECK. Cyber Monday: CHECK. Now, time to get back to the Brand of the Day 30% off sales, starting today with Kickers. Women, men, AND kids rejoice because the rustic chic boots and sandals you’ve been eyeing are on sale starting today until Dec 6th.

One year prior to their foundation in 1970, founder Daniel Raufast came across a poster of the world famous show “Hair” and was intrigued by the featured youth. Noting that the jean-clad people on the poster were pictured barefoot, Daniel decided it was time to create footwear for the jean-wearer. In other words, Daniel sought out to create a style of shoes compatible with denim. Designer Jacques Chevallereau created the first “jean boot” for Kickers, ensuring the new style was the perfect companion for denim-centered looks. The new scheme became so successfully that Kickers’ productions numbers soared form 300 to 12,000 in just one month. Four years later, Raufast founded Kickers, and today, the brand can be found at retail stores in over 70 countries (including DNA Footwear!).

Grab your pocketbook because these hot sellers won’t last long at these prices!

Brand of the Day: Bebe 30% Off

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

bebe

Since we do TWO ‘Brands of the Day’ every day, we think it’s only fair to do one sneaker brand and one fancy footwear brand: bebe. Bebe will be on sale for 30% off starting today and lasting until Nov. 30th so get your holiday party heels now! Don’t wait until December to save on the latest high heels, wedges, and boots.

Bebe designs, develops and produces a distinctive line of contemporary women’s apparel and accessories under the sub-brands bebe, BEBE SPORT, 2b bebe, and bebe outlet. The bebe revolution began in San Francisco in1976, founded by Manny Mashouf, who saw a gap in the fashion industry. In the 70′s, clothing categories were set between juniors and bridge and provocative clothing was yet to be invented. Mashouf wanted to offer women a chance to wear age-appropriate clothing, which would flatter and make them feel good about themselves, thus he created bebe. What many don’t know about the brand is that the name was inspired by the Shakespearean quote “to be or not to be”, and was a call for women to make statements with their clothing.

Make your statement with DNA Footwear and  bebe today!
